YOU`RE HIRED! Well Done to the competition winners Jedd, Andrew, Fraser and Jack and their enterprising Item Maker design. Spend your “virtual” £100 000.00 wisely on your new invention! Congratulations also to the two runner up groups who designed the Cube and Every Monkey Helps!
The Apprentice is our annual modern day link to the inventor spirit of John Muir, one of his many interests!
In p5 we are doing the Apprentice, we have to go in groups of 3 or 4 and we have to try to think of an invention. The best one will get chosen and get a fake cheque of one thousand pounds. We also have to advertise it and draw a picture of it and colour it in and label it. We have been really enjoying this activity because it is good fun.

In P5 we are doing a thing called the H.O.W. Challenge as part of our John Muir project. We split up into groups of 4 or 5. Mrs Lima gave us all an environmental problem and we had to research it and make a presentation. We had to answer 4 questions and they were: What is the environmental issue? Why is it is a problem? What can we do to fix it? And why should our group get the money? The money is our reward for being the best group and coming up with the best solutions to solve the problem. We don’t actually get any money though! It is worth £1000. H.O.W stands for Help Our World.

P5 spent time designing and creating souvenirs to display in a shop in their classroom. They thought about the importance of tourism to North Berwick and researched different types of souvenirs and what made them quality items. The variety of souvenirs produced by the children was excellent and the shop looks great.
The children are currently spending time shopping in their shop and selecting which items they think they would like to give as presents to someone if they were visiting North Berwick.
Once again primary 5 are in pursuit of the prestigious John Muir Award and this year their focus is on pollution. They will be adopting a beach through the Marine Conservation Society, working very closely with the Ranger and will be learning about water treatment from Mr Conlin when he visits.
In September all the primary 5 classes visited John Muirs birth place in Dunbar and learned a huge amount about the great man from the staff David and Pauline. They had lots of fun and would like to say a huge thank you to them. The pupils will also be having their say in the comments below:
P5A have been planning, designing, making, pricing and packaging souvenirs for a class shop as part of our North Berwick topic. They will explain what they made and how much they are charging for their product. Other classes will be invited to come and do some “window shopping”, choosing the things they would buy with £10.00 (pretend money). Then a group will work out which were the most popular products and why. But Well Done to all the pupils who used their imaginations to come up with some super ideas.
